of some instruments that could -- showing, you know, trouble in the lending market. >> the big question is, will washington let that happen, and right now that answer is not any clearer than it was yesterday morning. we begin with breaking news, though. this titanic struggle that's continued to go on right now to end the debt crisis before next tuesday's deadline. here's a live look at the capitol where overnight, infighting among republicans forced house speaker john boehner to yank his debt bill. they thought there was going to be a vote last night. there is hope he will try to pass it again today. in four hours the speaker will again sit down with fellow republicans and again try to entice just a handful of hardline conservatives to fall in line. >> the bill's not perfect. i never said it was perfect. nobody in my caucus believes it's perfect. but what this bill reflects is a sincere, honest effort to end this crisis in a bipartisan way to send it to the senate where it can receive action. >> now the speaker's bill would cut $900 billion from the budget over ten years in exchange for a

the arrest of rebekah brooks. she's out on bail right now, but her arrest over the weekend a big surprise. >> reporter: yeah. i mean, she was -- the length that she was detained for was incredible as well. 12 hours she spent -- more than 12 hours in a police station in london answering questions, and she wasle only released around midnight last night local time. so that was a huge development in this. she's out on police bail now, but that doesn't mean she's excused from appearing before a committee of mps tomorrow london time. she's still going to turn up and be careful about what she says, and the politicians are going to have to be careful about what they ask her as well. there could be a trial down the track if she's charged, and therefore they're going to make sure under the rules here that they don't sort of prejudice any forthcoming trial. nevertheless i think she's going to get a pretty tough interrogation at the hands of politicians as will her former bosses rupert and james murdoch who appear now separately from her before the same committee tomorrow afternoon. >> dan, let me as
to an end. it's just a big project, a $1 billion project that wraps up hopefully if things go as scheduled monday morning. right now, what you're looking at are construction crews hard at work behind me. they're demolishing a portion of this bridge. when i say busy, this artery is busy, 500,000 cars pass through it each day. millions hit this freeway each week. it's a big deal. so far we've gotten a really interesting update i'll tell you about in a sec. i saw cnn take the pictures live a short time ago. hopefully you turned it around for us. it was pretty cool stuff. knocking off chunks and chunks of those cement blocks at the top there, really, really hard work, a big, big project to tackle. but it seems that things are ahead of schedule. they're tearing down just a portion of that bridge. the update we have, we checked in with los angeles police as well as california transportation officials, things look really well on the roadways, the surface streets. traffic across the city is still relatively like. they don't know what the rest of the day or the weekend will bring. but if things mov
out of room to cut. you will remember the big spending bill earlier this year cut tens of billions of dollars. so if you take a step back and you look at the entire forest there's a lot of spending cuts going on. lot of real spending cuts democrats are arguing that they are going to hurt a lot of people. so those certainly are accounting tricks. in terms of that last little margin to get to the point where they are cutting more than they are raising the debt ceiling which is what republican leaders wanted to do, they needed to rely on some creative use of cbo accounting methods. >> right. this is also interesting, though. even if he does get john boehner, that is, the house, even if he does get the conservatives to fall in lynn and go ahead and vote for this, there seems to be question about whether it will get out of the senate. have you 53 senators, two independents, included who said they are not going to support boehner's proposal. now we are looking at another proposal perhaps harry reid's proposal which the cbo also downgraded. let's take a look at the numbers. instead of $2.
reporter dovetails neatly with our big question tonight. keeping them honest, if a strong majority of americans is telling washington they want a deal on the debt crisis, they want these guys to compromise with the other side, they want a mix of spending cuts and tax increases. then why isn't washington getting the mage? we've got new polling that says all of that. and this is important. recent polling may also explain why we haven't got an deal yet. we'll tell you what we're talking about. in any case, americans are speaking out today. >> good morning, speaker boehner's office. how may i help you? >> a summer avalanche of phone calls hitting the capitol. president obama asked for it in his address to the nation last night. here it is. house switchboard today getting nearly double the volume of normal phone calls, house speaker baine er's office reporting as many as 300 people on hold for as long as an hour. online the same story. site unavailable. server busy. we found better than one in three congressional web sites either slow or down entirely from all the volume. also multiple
of washington's impact. but mining stocks with big drags here. we have rio tinto. financials fell. >> you know, ramy, we've been so preoccupied by what's happened in washington that sometimes it's easy to lose sight of the fact we are in the midst of earnings seasons. we've had reports across the region. >> nintendo, they slashed their full year's forecast earnings by a whopping 82%. that's because gamers aren't so interested in their handheld 3-d game players which came out five months ago. that would be the 3-ds. that's the biggest fall in the past two decades. you're looking at a year to date. nintendo share prices dropped a whopping 47%. it's a similar story, not so bad for sony. they cut its profit estimate for the year by about 25%. this was yesterday. that's because of weak demand for tvs like this bravia over in the u.s. and europe. sony's share price year to date has also dropped by about 35%. but, you know, it's not all doom and gloom. they say its net income surged to about $1.31 billion. this is for the six months to may. forecasters had been -- forecast had been for earnings for a

states and these other 18 countries have aaa ratings. the u.s. is the big safe haven in the world. so why do these credit agencies matter? who listens to them? investors around the world listen to them. they look at the credit rating agencies and the credit rating of companies and countries to decide where they'll invest the money. for governments, they have a lot of power over the interest rates on the bonds that they can sell to investors. the safest bets pay the lowest interest. that and 's what you want if yoa government trying to raise money. agencies are either paid by the borrower or from subscribers who need the information. standard & poor's tells cnn money that the sovereign u.s. rating is unsolicited, that the u.s. government doesn't pay anything for that rating. and that it is an unbiased ass isment of what's p happhappenin the u.s. >>> here's a rundown some of the stories we're covering. wall street employees are canceling vacations with the debt ceiling deadline just six days away. is that a bad omen for your 401(k)? and i talked to a man who developed a rare tumor after wor
questions. on the one hand, he loses a day and there are only six days to go. so that is a big deal. the other thing is that what is more important is the loss perhaps in credibility. the speaker said his plan was going to, you know, save something like over a trillion dollars. but it only saves about $850 billion. so that's a bill difference, too. a question of credibility. on the other hand, he buys some time, because there are a number of people in the house of representatives, some of whom who actually spoke out last night and said this thing is not going to pass. i'm not going to vote for it. he gets a little bit more time to try to drum up the support he needs, because once he puts something on the floor, he has got to get a yea vote. >> all right. dan, you know, there is some talk of a band-aid slash patch approach. what would that do? >> reporter: well, look. a message you've heard from the white house last week or so, that the president does not embrace a short-term deal, but if, in fact, it does appear that there is some compromise happening, that both sides have agreed to
played out today? >> in a word, no. this is one of the most extraordinary days in the history of big time criminal justice in the united states. the head spinning pace of events and the rapid turn around in the fortunes of the sides in this case. is like nothing i've ever seen before. and it looks like this case is going to end with a dismissal of the case at this point. it's hard to imagine how there could be a trial at this point when the prosecution has essentially described its main witness as a something close to a compulsive liar. >> i want to hear now from the alleged victim's lawyer, jeffrey. claiming prosecutors have turned on his client. let's listen to this then i want to ask you about it. >> now, it is a fact that the victim here made some mistakes. but that doesn't mean she's not a rape victim. and so all of this stuff that they leaked to the "new york times" was designed to discredit this woman. and i spoke to her a little while ago. and through her tear, through her hurt, she asked me, why did they do this to ni me? and i said, i don't know why. and now, she is determined.

us the big picture. >> reporter: what's happening now is democrats are waiting. they're just waiting to see what happens with the republican's bill before making their own move in the senate. the big picture here is neither the republican's bill in the house nor the democrats' bill in the senate seems to have the votes to get through both houses of congress. so we're back at stalemate. >> and so it's wednesday and there's no deal. the ted line is tuesday of next week. if congress can't get it done by then, you could start to see higher interest rates, a declining dollar and other problems. the white house website has put up a chart that breaks down the u.s. debt by administration over the last ten years. i was just looking at it. more than $3.5 trillion because of changes to the economy, not policy changes, but less tax income and things like that. the two wars, tax cuts, t.a.r.p., the so-called bank bailout, the stimulus is all listed there. worth checking out if you have some time. don't worry, it's safe for work. we do love our charts. >>> a federal granld jury in alabama indicted
. if they manage to defeat this vote today, this is going to be a big, big problem for markets. if they don't, you may see markets continue to tread water until there is a solution to this. now, remember, speaker boehner's plan is not likely one that is going to pass the senate. not likely one that is going to get past the president. the bottom line if there is some sense boehner has better control of h over hi members you may see markets allowing a little bit more time. right now markets are largely relaxing but ready to move if this doesn't go the right way. >> thanks, guys. >>> at the bottom of the hour, we will go to wall street for the opening bell and answer a question many of us have right now -- should we take our money out of the stock exchange and where do we put it if so. we will talk to a financial analyst about that. >>> cnn obtained dramatic new video taken minutes after the bombing of the government buildings in norway. it was shot by a hamburg who works in oslo and driving through a tunnel beneath the city's government plaza when the bomb went off. eight people killed. he recorded
shows how big this struggle is right now. >> it's adding fodder, too, for the comedians. take a listen. >> our government is days away from being broke. congress' latest plan is to see how much cash they can get for john mccain on antiques road show. 33 soldiers from the mexican army were allowed to return to mexico yesterday after they accidently crossed the border into america. did you hear about that some heart. think about it. things have gotten so bad in in country that people are only crossing the border now by accident. according to a recent survey, this year kids are receiving an average of 40 cents less under their pillows from the tooth fairy. enmake believe people are feeling the pinch. >> i don't know, he tried, don't you think? >> i tell you, this crisis is giving late night com he cans a lot of fuel, but unfortunately, it's not a laughing matter. so hopefully something will happen this weekend. >> all right, we'll be paying close attention. all the comedians, as well. >>> a new report now mentions that there is one american company with more money on hand than the governm
a deal, it starts to weaken the white house i guess. >> reporter: a big deal of deficit reduction obviously is feeling very elusive and chances of doing something like that seem to be very slim at this point. in terms of the debt ceiling, they are very much relying on a plan being worked out by senators reed and mcconnell, top democrat and republican in the senate, to move something forward so the senate can take a lead and the house can then follow suit maybe making some changes. i think right now that's the best hope. i do want to tell you looking at the president's schedule today, it's mighty bare. his normal presidential briefing and meetings with senior advisers but certainly there's a lot of room built in there for any sort of communication he needs to do with congress. >> right. there was talk they are working through the weekend so they are doing everything possible to come to an agreement. >> over night too. >> u.s. and libya hosting secret face to face talks since the libyan conflict began four months ago. the point of the weekend meeting was to send a clear message to m

's dysfunctional is we have divided government. that requires compromise. even though we have had big disputes over the years, there's been a situation where parties work together for things that have to happen. i know people around the country are frustrated and angry. the president shares that frustration. it's why the phone lines are jammed on the hill. e-mails and websites are going down because people don't understand why compromise is a dirty word in this town. >> how much responsibility does the white house take for the kurpt economy. there comes a point when blaming george bush no longer holds water. when you look at the credit rating coming down, how much blame are you guys taking in that? >> what the president has said is we didn't get into this mess overnight and we are not going to get out overnight. the president inherited financial challenges. we are working to get out of it. the president said the recovery is happening, but not fast enough. we are not creating enough jobs, the economy is not working. if we are going to have a real solution, it has to be republicans and democrats work
, but never quite so close to default. since we've been accumulating a big national debt, congress has raised the debt ceiling just 78 times. since 1960 alone. since the nation's debt reached the $1 trillion mark in the early 1980s, look at how government borrowing has skyrocketed. climbing really at an ex exponential rate. how is $14 trillion in relation to how big the economy is. it's about 95% of the size of the whole economy. we're fast approaching rates not seen since way back in world war ii and the great depression. when the size of the debt limit and the national debt was actually bigger than our gdp. this is what economists call a debt crisis. america runs by borrowing money. right now, 38 cents is borrowed money. if the debt kreeling is not raised in time, the u.s. could default on some of the payments. that's the last thing we need, recovering from a recession. >> fomdominique strauss-kahn ma face new sexual assault charges even though the case in new york is falling apart.

as 40,000 dead in the last four years. this shocking reality has made it's way on the big screen with a new genre called narco movies. in this movie called "high-powered people," a drug lord and an associate discuss alliances. the violence in their movies pales in comparison to reality. >> translator: we're not even close to reflecting reality. can you call our movies soft because we don't show as much blood and killings. we just try to give people what they want. >> reporter: the english translation of the movie titles are very revealing. the bough so the film makers say they make sure the screen plays don't rub any of the cartels the wrong way, and it's a kinds of self censorship that keeps them safe. >> translator: we deal with these issues in the best way possible. we're not afraid they will come after us because we behave. we do things the best we can and so far we have not been threatened by anybody. >> rafael romo joins me now. is anybody concerned about the glorification of what the cartels are all about? >> there is great concern. the movies are not yet mainstream in mex
targeted, it's basically not a big deal, now he's realized what a catastrophic error of judgment that was because the woman that's replaced him on this inquiry, sue acres, is saying up to 4,000 people could have been targeted by the newspapers. >> what about the implications that this is not just the now defunct "news of the world," but other papers? >> yeah. i think this is really significant and really bad news for news international. it's no longer just confined to "news of the world," the paper that they closed down, realizing it had become toxic as a brand. it's now spread to "the sun" and "sunday times." both so far have not been shown to have used phone hacking, but they have been shown to use what, at best, slightly underhand techniques, at worst illegal activities to get information. "the sun" is maintaining it got the medical records without breaking the law. "the sunday times" saying there was a legitimate public interest in looking into gordon brown's bank details and so on on a tip, but there was some sort of corruption there or something which was all proved to be u
perception losing less. because they keep talking about doing the big deal. so the public is blaming the white house less and blaming republicans and congress. but that doesn't get anybody anywhere. they still have to figure out a package. we're no closer at this moment. >> are all the problems we had last week, week before, yesterday, four hours ago, we still have all those problems? we're just talking about another maneuver and push it down to road. >> what's fascinating is i continue to hear these outsiders who don't work in washington describe this as washington as it works. there's always a mess in washington and they come together at the end. it's a normal washington process. and i'm talking to a lot of old washington hands who have been here for decades and they are calling this one as abnormal washington process. the difference with this one is that there are these new freshmen in the house of representatives that don't care about getting re-elected. you cannot sweeten this deal. you cannot win them over by adding something to the vote, really. and they don't know how this is
's going to have that commission or committee that will comprise the big grand bargain, which is ultimately a $4 trillion plan that will come back to each house not amendable, an up or down vote, and i hope that we can pass something like that so we can get not only the debt ceiling increased, which we have to right now, but we can really do some serious deficit reduction. >> but quickly, if that's what would happen, would it then not have in it the two vote -- the two votes that speaker boehner has in his plan? >> that's probably, at the end of the day, what is going to be the clencher. >> okay. >> but it's going to be a clencher that will have the senator mcconnell provision, which is there's a resolution of disapproval, so, in effect, when the president raised the debt ceiling, it's not going to be disapproved. >> okay. >> and that's the parliamentary machinations that go on. >> the democratic plan being offered by senator reid is near as i can tell here, would give the republicans the two things they have demanded all along, you have one, spending cuts equal to or greater to any increas

at the white house that there shouldn't be another vote. that should wait until 2013. is that the big stumbling block right now? >>> senator reid said he clearly does not agree with boehner's approach. >> there are similarities, though.. >> some of the spending cuts, not all. both have this congressional committee that's going to be charge the with trying to identify deficit reduction. you can see how there could be conner tos. eric cantor, speaker boehner, other republican leaders have said frequently through this whole process, they do not think we should extend the debt ceiling. what we need to do is come together, compromise, get us through this period of imminent price sis where we don't want the country to default and then let's move on first of all to focus on the economy and jobs, but finish the job of deficit reduction in months ahead. the speaker of the house john boehner and the president are having very, very, i think, productive discussions about areas of potential common ground and we hope some of that work will provide the foundation for what congress does down the road here. >>
's also about whether or not the big rating agencies decide to downgrade the stellar aaa credit rating of this country. even if that happens, this is why it matters to you. let's start with your home. most people's biggest investment, what is likely going to happen in the case of default certainly and even in a downgrade is your mortgage rate is going to go up. experts say this isn't just a temporary issue. mortgage rates will go up for a significantly long period of time. that's going to affect you, more houses sit on the market, prices fall further. this hurts the already weak housing market. let's transition to college. your college loan, your savings for college. similar story. the interest rate on private college loans is going to go up, it's going to be harder for folks to necessarily get credit if credit starts to freeze. the only sort of silver lining to this is that a lot of people do have their student loans lined up for at least the next term. it also affects your car. if you have a car payment, and it's very similar to your mortgage payment, when you talk about your car, in
party members that want huge cuts in spending and no hike in the debt ceiling. here is where the big numbers come in. the republican speaker has staked his leadership on the plan to let the treasury borrow $900 billion right away, while cutting $915 billion in future spending. contrast that with the senate plan from majority leader reid which would hike the debt by $2.7 trillion by cutting spending by $2.2 trillion. it's not clear when the senate will vote on anything, actually. and that brings me to cnn correspondent, kate bolduan. >> reporter: sounds like they are cautionly optimistic. i am told speaker boehner said they do not have the votes yet but will pass that pill, and some news, on the senate side, the senate majority leader harry reid took to the floor and said this evening, tonight, the senate will move to act on the boehner bill. this assumes that boehner secures the votes and does pass in the house, but this is significant, because all along we have been hearing that there was a sense that the senate was waiting to act to see what happens with the boehner bill, and harry
washington is going to feel the force, so to speak. he's a little guy with a big mission. take a look at who i met when i was in l.a. >> dr. gupta? >> yes, sir? >> you're it! >> i'm it? >> max page only knows one speed, full steam ahead. you have probably seen max before even though you may not know it. remember this ad from super bowl xlv? darth vader? nope, just max. within mere seconds of meeting him, max was asking about my daughters. >> three girls. >> let me guess. 4-year-old? >> yep. >> 2-year-old? >> yep. >> 6-year-old? >> you got it. how did you know? we are at the children's hospital with max and his brother. >> can i see your pacemaker? >> that's right. max has a pacemaker, and it's his third, and he's only 6-year-old. the first sign of trouble came before he was born. >> we found out max had structural damage to his heart. they could not get a good heartbeat. they took him emergency c-section, born in a whirlwind. >> the last thing i remember is almost hopelessness, because it's out of my hands as a dad, and as a dad, that's not something you are used to. >> i said, please, just
paint a picture for us about how a newspaper like "news of the world" goes about reporting on such a big story, what the level of the editor, deputy editor, senior reporters, would be in putting together a story like that? >> i think any big story, but for the purpose of process, most stories start out with the reporter and that reporter may be being asked by the news editor to go and investigate a story or they may have brought information about a story from their own contacts to the news editor. it is at that stage in a newspaper where the reporter and news editor discuss the veracity of the information, go out and check the allegations and come back with a more considered view. you can imagine that every newspaper gets a lot of information to the news desk and only a percentage, very small percentage, makes it actually to publication. so there are many layers from reporter to assistant news editor to news editor. finally, the story will go to the back bench which will be the people that will oversee the subbing of that story and the sub will often talk to the reporter directly with qu
